Laying Tracks Series: Making the Most of Avalanche Forecasts
January 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm UTC-8
Laying Tracks is our latest educational series for new backcountry travelers and those looking to refresh or deepen their knowledge. To get the most out of the series we strongly recommend you sign up for all four workshops.
Making the Most of Avalanche Forecasts
You are aware of the danger scale, but did you know that not all “considerable” ratings are created equal? During this workshop, our professional NWAC observers will help you navigate and become more familiar with NWAC’s avalanche forecasts. Participants will engage in a technology driven activity, that helps identify key take-aways from the forecast and how to best use our avalanche forecast as a tool you can apply to the field in your terrain selection process.
Participants should have a rudimentary understanding of avalanches as founded in an awareness course. We recommend that participants have taken an awareness course and have a foundation in summer travel. This workshop series will prepare you for a Level 1 avalanche course, so that you may be a more effective student and get more out of your Level 1 experience.
